Jose Mourinho confirms Manchester United's captain for the season

This confirmation of captaincy puts to bed speculation that United could install Pogba as the first-choice captain this season after his debut in the armband last weekend.

Zidane may not be waiting long for his next job, as traditionally Mourinho rarely lasts more than three seasons at one club and at the beginning of this, his third, cracks have begun to show.

"A goalkeeper wins points and wins titles, so he is as important as another player".

"When I speak about individual performances and when I'm critical with my players, you just don't accept it", he told Sky Sports.

Manchester United fans were definitely disappointed by the weak performance that was put in by the players vs Brighton.

Glenn Murray and Shane Duffy made the most of some lacklustre United defending to fire the Seagulls into a two-goal lead by the half-hour mark.

But quarterly reports on results are distinct from the so-called earnings guidance that company executives provide as a forecast. Trump later told reporters the idea was especially urged on him by Indra Nooyi, CEO of PepsiCo, who is stepping down in October.

Pogba reduced United's deficit by blasting home from the spot after Duffy felled Marouane Fellaini, but it was too little, too late.

"They've got absolutely nothing about them". However, a pre-season calf injury ruled the 33-year-old out for United's season opener against Liecester and Pogba was handed the captain's armband for that game. After a second-half cameo against Watford, Jahanbakhsh should start and could cause United some problems. The Iranian worldwide was the top scorer in the Eredivisie last season and enjoyed an impressive World Cup for Team Melli.

As for Manchester United, they defeated Leicester 2-1 in the opening game of the 2018/2019 season.

Souness had earlier criticised Mourinho after the Portuguese boss claimed Manchester City lacked class with their documentary on their 2017/18 title-winning campaign. Lukaku could be in line for a start leading the line in Brighton.

Mourinho turned to two of England's World Cup heroes in Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard at the break in search of inspiration. This was an improvement on their display in last season's 1-0 home win over the same opponents and will give the manager hope of a top-half finish this term.
